i love the movie Kung Fu Panda. there is no secret ingredient. it is all about the inside of us, what we believe about ourselves, and Who we believe in. i am poor in spirit, but rich in Spirit. i love to bake with love, sew with love, garden with love. His Spirit is about love. this year some of my students have become like all other students in the past that i have taught. after 1.5 years they believe they know more than the teacher – me. they don’t listen, they talk back, they are rude, they don’t study, in short – i wish the would leave. this year they have taken it to a further extreme in that they believe my only job is to teach – which means i have to restrain love in my classroom. it is sad they are so selfish and sad. but it is what it is, and eventually they will hopefully learn a valuable lesson. that they are poor in spirit.
